I really recommend this hotel, It is intended to host mainly families and persons who visit the hospital CHUV but it as a great Price/value The rooms are modern and very clean Included in the stay you will receive a ticket to take de metro for the duration of your stay , a nice plus. It is a quality hotel and if you are lucky to stay in the 4 and 5th Floor on the lake side you can enjoy a nice view Staff was always friendly and hepful Breakfast could be improved Parking is 20CHF per night (you can get a weekticket for 7 days of parking for 70CHF directly in the CHUV parking. Ask at the CHUV parking operator on the CHUV parking 4th floor)

It's a particular hotel where the patients are living but you don't feel like in a hospital. The room are quite big and the bathroom as well. The parking is connected to the hotel for 20CHF/day, convenient considering the cost to leave the car on the street. The metro is 50 metres far from the hotel and connect with Ouchy and the city centre in 15'

All was excellent. Although a bit far, you have the metro in front and can be in the center in few stops. Parking practical too, staff very professional especially during Covid (the location is actually inside a hospital). Rooms very spacious and clean. We are definitely coming again.

We had to chance to stay a couple of nights at Hôtel des Patients- and being familiar with Lausane - this is without a doubt one of the best value you can get for your money in the city. The property is brand new, rooms are big, bright and super clean with a comfortable bed and boy, what a view. Despite being close to the hospital everyone makes you feel welcome and ensure that you have a wonderful stay, despite all the Covid related sanitary measures, they went over and beyond to make us feels as comfortable as possible. The location it self is incredibly convenient, you are literally 5 min away from the city center by metro (add a 2 min walk from the hotel to the metro station), plus you get a free public transport card when you check in! I would highly recommend this place to anyone staying in Lausanne, may that be for work or leisure, thanks again for having us!!!
